Time Of Day Most Passengers Airborne Worldwide

Sun Feb 28, 2010 2:49 am

During which 1 hour interval each day are the highest number of passengers airborne worldwide? Maybe 13:00 to 14:00 GMT (since domestic North American flights would be starting as Asian domestic flights are ending)?

And here is one for the World, you can see during which area that has the most flights in the air.

I would say about 0:35 seconds in this video shows the most. Which may be around 10 am eastern time.

I would peg this at 1430 UTC, since on the west side of daytime, California is 6:30 am, and at the east side, Japan is 11:30 pm. This places basically everything in the world in traditional extended business hours, except for Alaska, NZ, eastern Australia, and some of the Pacific islands.

Thanks so much guys. Then, perhaps the slowest time of day for flights worldwide is 0530 UTC (before most intra-European flights start for the day yet after most eastern North American flights are completed)?
